An insight into the management of a grouse moor will be among the attractions in the Country Pursuits area at the Great Yorkshire Show.

Organised by the Countryside Alliance and National Gamekeepers Organisation, A Year in the Life of a Grouse Moor is a new addition to the daily arena programme and will be presented by John Cavana, of Patanavac Gundogs, from near York.

The programme will look at the life of grouse, from nesting to preparation for cooking and will be shown twice daily at 11.30am and 4.30pm.

The Great Yorkshire Show runs from Tuesday 12 July to Thursday 14 July and is expected to attract more than 130,000 visitors.
